The verdict on software-defined, hyperconverged and cloud storage from DataCore is in: while hyperconverged is making inroads organisations are struggling, while software-defined storage is seeing a greater number of use cases.This analysis may not come as a huge surprise given DataCore’s primary business line is through software-defined. Yet the study, which polled 400 IT professionals who were currently using or evaluating software-defined storage, hyperconverged and cloud storage, still has plenty of interesting statistics to consider.Three in five respondents (60%) said that automating frequent or complex storage operations was a key business driver for implementing these storage technologies overall, while simplifying storage management (56%) and extending the life of existing storage assets (56%) were also highly cited.
